"Memory" initially engrossing but not, um, memorable

"Hatching" a twisted Finnish fairy tale

"Stanleyville" a strange bird with a deadpan, off-kilter vibe

"Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent" a hoot that celebrates Nick Fuckiiiiiiiiiiiiing Cage

"The Northman" an epic-scaled, enthrallingly brutish meal of a movie

"Dual" a drolly imagined sci-fi black comedy with two deadpan Karen Gillans

"Unplugging" too uneven and strained to be funny about digital detox

"Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore" a welcome rebound that stands on its own

"The Cellar" too silly to earn shivers and too familiar to satisfy

"Everything Everywhere All at Once" a joyously weird, one-of-a-kind blast of cinematic nirvana
